Overview

The X-Files rolls into its next season with Fox's release of The X-Files: The Complete Fourth Season on DVD. Each of these 24 episodes (spread over seven discs) are presented in 1.33:1 full-frame and feature well-saturated colors and dark black levels. While there is a bit of grain and dirt present in a few key scenes, overall, each of the episodes appears to be in excellent shape. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround in English and French. Not surprisingly, the 2.0 mix is not as exciting as it could have been had Fox given fans a newly mixed 5.1 track. While the soundtrack may not impress, the good news is that it's void of any hiss or distortion that might otherwise mar the mix. No alternate subtitles or soundtracks are available on this set. The episodes on this disc include "Tempus Fugit, "Teliko, "Elegy, "Small Potatoes, and more. The extra features on The X-Files: The Complete Fourth Season should give fans some extra-added insight into the show. Starting off the set are two audio commentaries, with Frank Spotnitz on "Memento Mori" and Vince Gilligan on "Small Potatoes." Each of these tracks dole out equal parts technical and character information from the show. The short featurette "The Truth About Season Four" includes interviews with directors and producers Kim Manners, Paul Rabwin, R.W. Goodwin, Frank Spotnitz, Vince Gilligan, Darin Morgan, recording mixer David West, and several other cast and crew members. This is a very interesting, if all-too-brief, look at the inside workings of the show. A batch of interviews with various crew members (as well as creator Chris Carter) allow viewers yet more access into the world of The X-Files. A group of special effects vignettes is a great way for the viewer to see what it was like getting some of the creepy effects from the studio to the screen. Six deleted scenes are included which allow the viewer to see what was left on the editing room floor. Finally there's a large batch of TV spots and promotional materials for fans to peruse through, and some DVD ROM content for those in possession of a PC.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chas Turner
The X-Files gets better as it gets more complicated, a truism hammered home here in the smash series' fourth season. Originally aired in 1996-97, in the Collector's Edition the season's complete 24-show run is spread over the seven discs of the set, continuing in the format of earlier full-season collections. The show's conspiracy theories -- known to fans simply as "the mythology" -- develop deliciously, exploding in the season finale with the apparent death of one of the lead characters. After the first three ultra-successful seasons, creator/writer Chris Carter was in tune with the growing legions of "X-philes," meting out developments between lead Special Agents Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) with a master poet's control. Picking up after Season Three's tense ending, "Herrenvolk" wastes no time in furthering story lines and setting up the season, most notably the strange relationship between Smoking Man (William B. Davis) and Mulder's mother (Rebecca Toolan), and possible conspiracy theories surrounding bees, explored later in the season in "Tunguska," "Terma," and eventually on the big screen in 1998's X-Files: Fight the Future. Among the season's usual monsters, mysteries, and mythology, "Memento Mori" is a standout, revealing Scully's brain cancer and suggesting the possibility of an alien abduction in the past. "Mori" is also significant in that it originally featured a kiss between Scully and Mulder. The scene was ultimately cut from broadcast but can be found as a bonus memento in the Collector's Edition set, along with six other deleted scenes. The fourth season of The X-Files also marks a return of the celebrated writing duo Glen Morgan and James Wong (Final Destination) for the season's second installment, "Home," picked by many fans as the most grotesque, horrifying, and disturbing episode in the show's history. To call the show's fourth season a turning point may seem irrelevant, as the show marvelously turns around on itself week after week. But in Season Four Carter and his creative team firmly establish The X-Files among the most significant entries in TV history.

A Must Have for all X-Files fans! Much easier to work with than the earlier season DVDs, and more extras.
